What I Ate Wednesday

Now that I’m back in LA, it’s nice to get back to my regular routine.

I’m especially excited to be reunited with my juicer!

Morning

Fresh juice: One romaine heart, half an English cucumber, 5 large carrots and a lemon.

Followed by a cup of organic strawberries.

Lunch

A large mixing bowl of salad–> 5 oz. mixed greens, raw sauerkraut (store-bought), cherry tomatoes, red peppers, a whole avocado, dressed with lemon juice and a squirt of organic German mustard. (my new favorite mustard!)

Post-Workout Snack

Plain goat’s milk yogurt, topped with chopped steamed beets.

Dinner

We dined out at a local BBQ restaurant, where I ordered this grilled salmon salad. I brought my own dressing of mustard and lemon juice, to avoid any more scary restaurant dressings.

Post-Dinner

Bengal Spice tea, with a bit of 100% chocolate melted into it–> it was like a spicy Mexican hot chocolate!

Lots of good food!

    I really need to try making a seaweed salad! All of your eats sound so good!

Emily

I love these posts! This week I have increased my fruit intake, particularly berries. I have been having real cravings for them and utterly loving the blackberries. One of those times I exaggeratedly swear I could live on berries alone 😉

    Megan

    I love blackberries, too! I think I could be pretty happy living off just berries. 😉

Yogurt and beets does not sound appetizing to me – bleh!

    Megan

    Ha, it was definitely an unusual combo… probably not my favorite. 😉

Keri

The yogurt and beets is something I have never seen before!

    Megan

    There’s probably a good reason for that– it’s kinda weird. 😉 Not the worst combo I’ve ever tried, but not the best either.

Well I have to respond and say that beets and yogurt sound TASTY to me! Probably with some stevia and cinnamon.

    Megan

    Stevia would have definitely helped!! And cinnamon. 😉

I wonder if you added walnuts and a drizzle of honey if it would be like cheesecake?

I made a smoothie with strawberries today, which I almost never do. Strawberries, greens, banana, almond milk, stevia, vanilla, cardamom, ice. Awesome!

    Megan

    Mmm… I bet it would be reminiscent of cheesecake! Your smoothie sounds terrific. 🙂

Caroline

Your salads look amazing! I have been reading your blog and super obsessed with all your recipes! You have really inspired me to eat better!
Tomorrow, I am having your avacado smoothie in the morning! Super excited!!

    Megan

    That makes me so happy, Caroline. 🙂 Hope you enjoy the smoothie!!

Hi Megan please can you share where did you buy mustard? or the link thanks:-)

Love strawberries we have wild strawberries in mountain here also blueberries I go there every summer and find like 20 pounds and freeze them. They are much smaller

    Megan

    I bought the mustard at Whole Foods– it’s their brand. I love that it’s made with apple cider vinegar!

Bridget

Hi
I just bought a juicer and I am very excited to get healthy using my jucier. do you have receipes? I have been trying many difffernt kinds, some just dont taste good mixed

Lisa

The yogurt with beets is such a random combo haha. Any good? I love that tea! I just tried it out yesterday, so delicious

Sara

Thanks for the recommendation on the Began Spice tea! I tried it yesterday for the first time and you’re right its sweet…I wonder what sweetener they use since its not listed on the ingredients. It tastes like a cross between chai and big red gum. Delicious!

I am working on food combination but I find my self overeating the food I like more.. still don’t feel bloated.Do I need to work on portions even if I feel just satisfied? example is 1 full avocado with cabbage leafs, spinach and pico with whole grain bread and 1 cup of sweet potatoes and butter? yum is like heaven.. Also I like dark chocolate after my meals and sometimes eat 3 squares..but its 85% cacao :)I wait 3-4 hours before next meal.
